Oblivion – Chivalrous Amoekons

The Roots of Music is proud to premier “Oblivion”. Chivalrous Amoekons (members include Bonnie Prince Billy and Angel Olsen, among others) will be donating part of the proceeds from this special live record to The Roots of Music! Mekons is one of the longest-running and most prolific of the first-wave British punk rock bands, who always paid it forward to the next generation of musicians. Thank you to Drag City Records and everyone involved!

Meet the Roots of Music

What makes our program so special?  Watch and learn!  Many thanks to our friends at StubHub!, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and HBO, who produced this uplifting video vignette to introduce the world to our amazing students.


We believe music has the power to transform lives. The Roots of Music empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of our city. Our goal is to provide our kids with the resources they need to lead positive, productive, self-reliant lives.
